Rex Conway's GWR Steam Album


This book delves into the history of the GWR before 1948 - the year that British Railways came into existence following the nationalisation of the 'Big Four' railway companies. Every corner of the GWR can be seen through a fascinating selection of Rex Conway's stunning and invaluable images, from Penzance to Paddington. Here we see a plethora of engines such as 'Saints', 'Stars', 'Halls', 'Castles', 'Kings' and 'Bulldogs'. From record-breakers to shunters, this book reveals the extraordinary story of the GWR and its many visionary characters, men like Brunel, Churchward and Collett. Featuring extensive views of Swindon Works, the magnificent station at Bristol Temple Meads, halts, tunnels, sheds and bridges too, this book is a must-have for anyone with a passion for the GWR and the golden age of steam.
